Shape the Future:
The Government Contract Pricing (GCP) Summit is a one-of-a-kind event bringing together government acquisition professionals as well as pricing analysts, estimators and contract professionals from private industry. This is a unique opportunity for pricing and acquisition professionals to learn, network and share ideas with their government and industry counterparts.
GCP Summit 2017 sessions will feature pricing leaders from both sides of the federal procurement process.
The reason why I was so excited about this conference is because we need innovation, we need fresh and new thought.

The best part about this week is really the opportunity to meet with the other side of the government contracting spectrum. In your everyday life, you’re not dealing with the government folks so this was a great opportunity to see things from their perspective.

So often we just do what we know. And if you don’t come to things like this and listen to other people and interact with your peers and experts in the industry, you never evolve beyond where you are today. I think it’s important to make sure that we stay compliant, learn new things; bring new things back to the office that other people can actually use. I am planning to come next year and I’m sure after I do some lunch-and-learns from the sessions that we had this week, my boss will be all for that.

So much to learn and the interfacing with the government and industry together is great.

I can’t tell you enough as why this event is so important. Number one is that it gives the opportunity for government and industry to come together. Not only network, but learn together, and hopefully go back to their workplaces and work together to establish the best possible price on both sides.

I thought it was very dynamic and innovative. I work in industry and to see the other side…to see the government perspective and hearing the terms they use; getting up-to-date information, and being face to face was really good. I absolutely look forward to coming back next year.
